A very good dish but seems the sauce was missing something. Maybe some cream in the sauce for richness, or butter. Love the flavor of the broccoli steaming it in the broth.

I’m a big fan of dill, so I thought I’d really enjoy this. Unfortunately, not the case. I made it exactly as written. The combination of broth, chicken, milk and dill was just odd and unappetizing. We ate it, but I won’t make it again.

I sauteed fresh garlic in the oil instead of using garlic salt, so that I could adjust the sodium content. I also used low sodium chicken broth, and sliced the chicken breast into 3 wide slices each, and put back into the sauce to heat and put the broccoli on top with the lid to reheat it. I served this with noodles, a.s that's what my granddaughter loves. This recipe was a hit and is definitely a keeper!

I can't get over how easy and yummy this recipe was!! I served it with rice and the whole family loved it. Loved the extra flavor the broth gives the broccoli. Will definitely be making it again!

Delicious! I doubled the sauce because I wanted some to moisten some leftover mac & cheese. Also steamed the broccoli separately...just easier for me. Served all in a large bowl after slicing the cooked chicken. Will definitely make this again. Glad you submitted this recipe, Kallee!!!
